    I am confused here.

    It shows here ATT with $150 subsidized pricing. ETF is $325 + $36 activation fee. Out of contract pricing seems to be at $599 (via best buy)

    So why dont I just buy it on contract and immediately transfer to straight talk and pay the etf... seems a bit cheaper @ $511.... unless there's a catch in here somewhere...

    You might have to keep it activated on AT&T to take advantage of the unsubsidized price. If so, that might screw up your plan.

    You could totally do that if you want. It is sometimes cheaper to go that route. If you do that though, there is a slight waiting period before you can sign-up for another line on AT&T. Typically a 6-month period. Then again, if you weren't going to sign-up for AT&T in the next 6 months anyway, then that's not an issue.

    You do need to wait past the 14-day trial period before leaving AT&T. Which means you'll end up paying for part of a month of service. So the savings may not be so significant in the end (which was the point of raising the ETF, because people did this exact thing).
